Imperialism of the Womb
The anti-abortion hysteria of present time has less to do with protecting the unborn and everything to do with posturing American Exceptionalism in the accelerating moral and economic war against China. We’re revisiting, as it were, the religious philosophies of the 1950’s between atheistic Soviets and God-fearing Americans. By denying women their constitutional right to abortion, the law is forcing women to have babies. Incremental steps in this direction has been the recent diaper rash of anti-choice legislation implicitly promoting a forced-birth agenda, protected as a deeply-held religious belief, ironically violating the 1st, 5th, 13th and 14th Amendments. If China is the nation of forced abortions, the United States will be the nation of forced births. It is imperialism of the womb.
